What’s On: HBO Schedule for August

HBOWatch hopes that wherever you are vacationing this August you can still watch HBO. Don’t fret too much though because HBO is light-weight as the summer winds down. There are only four Saturday night premieres, a few closing episodes left in the summer series airing and only one show premiere. Nevertheless, we are sure you’ll find something to watch. I personally did pretty well in July. I watched the first three of the four movie premieres just like I set out to do. They were all movies I wouldn’t go to the cinema to see but, hey, in the comfort of my own home they were a treat,...

Photos from the set of Game of Thrones Season 3: Riverrun

A little bird sent us a few photos from the set of Game of Thrones season 3 today.  These look to be associated with the fortress of Riverrun, where House Tully makes its home.  We can’t 100% confirm these but our source gave some indications that they were reliable and  form what we can tell they look to be legit, high-budget prop pieces.  They’re also flying the Tully standards!   Take a look at the photos and judge for yourself whether or not they’re from the set of Game of Thrones season 3. UPDATE: We’re 100% convinced these are from the set of Game of...

Here is a brief look at what wheeling & dealing is going on in the corporate halls of HBO.   Stephen Merchant has more plans for HBO. Mr. Merchant is no stranger to comedy.

In all those shows he has been beside fellow Brit Ricky Gervais. Now HBO has given the green light for Stephen Merchant to go solo as director and star of a new project. He is also the head writer of a comedy series coming to HBO called HELLO LADIES. The show is...

The latest Boardwalk Empire season 3 trailer features a climactic scene from the end of last year’s series of episodes. Fans have been waiting for another season of Boardwalk Empire for months now but the wait is almost over now that HBO has announced a premiere date of September 16th for new episodes.

The Ugly Truth: What HBO’s Newsroom Can Do for Us

The Ugly Truth: What HBO’s Newsroom Can Do for Us

Adam takes a look at the first five episodes of HBO’s The Newsroom.  For a different take on the series read Charlie’s recent article on a similar topic.  Please leave your own thoughts below and add to the conversation! Only six episodes into its premier season, Aaron Sorkin’s newest project, The Newsroom, has seen its fair share of praise and critique from just about every modern level of discerning eye there is. This level of attention speaks to a heavy burden the show had coming out of its gate to be more than what it is, to recreate a magic Sorkinites (Sorkinans?)...

This Just In About…a Larry David Movie

This Just In About…a Larry David Movie

The Los Angeles Times has a exclusive report about a Larry David project. The information comes from a source close to the project that wishes to remain anonymous. Keep in mind that this movie is not a guarantee at this time but, if it is HBOWatch and most of its followers should be very happy. CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM’s mastermind Larry David had been developing a under-the-radar feature that had a go at Fox Searchlight. It was to star the likes of Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton and David himself. Though greatly influenced and conceived by Mr. David the film is to be directed by Greg Mattola (he...

News Roundup: THE NEWSROOM busted; THE WIRE News & No HBO/Netflix Deal

It has been a slow new week as far as this the pay channel is concerned but HBOWatch has managed to cobble a few items together to report. Oh, there was talk of the latest boxing match, but this writer doesn’t really follow that sport. Anyone care to write for HBOWatch on that programming? Anyway, here now is the news…  THE NEWSROOM busted?  Forbes has come out with some interesting news. Joe Bercovici has noted a number of negative reviews of the show and a Metacritic.com rating of 57 out of 100. For those unfamiliar with that site it is an aggregator of reviews that then...

Lafayette: A Heart of Gold dressed in Gold Pants

When Lafayette first appeared on my screen, I knew I would love this guy. I had no idea he was in for so many changes over the next 4 seasons. Lafayette is the Bon Temps resident homosexual, a gay fish in a very straight small town pond. Make no mistake, he is a big fish. He is the local V dealer, sometimes selling marijuana as well. He runs an adult webcam site, one in which he manages to get Jason Stackhouse to appear for pay in the form of V. He has a prostitute-type relationship with the V donor, Vampire Eddie, so all the V sales are profit. He also has male prostitute relationships...

Web Gem Wednesday – July 25

Web Gems is intended to give you an entertaining, and sometimes humorous, look at your favorite HBO shows and the actors that make them great. After all, these people aren’t just the characters they play; they are real people, with real interests. They do stupid and rather embarrassing things just like everyone else. But also show us just how awesome they really are. My plan is to bring you a collection of videos, pictures, tweets, and fan creations that I have found while surfing this thing we call the internet. Various sources have been used, multiple avenues explored, and everything is...

Summer Documentary: VITO

Summer Documentary: VITO

Overview: Who? Honestly, that was my first reaction. For some reason when a person’s name is the title of a piece I think that it must be someone I should know. I do not know this person. His full name is Vito Russo and he was a major player in the beginnings of the gay-rights movement. He was a founding member of a number of advocacy groups including GLADD as well as a writer and lecturer. Expectations: All I can say is that he must be a champion for his cause; a hero among his community, even after his death in 1990. He boldly must have raised awareness and saw a need to make mainstream...

Reviewing the First Half of The Newsroom

Reviewing the First Half of The Newsroom

With five episodes now in the books, HBO’s newest drama The Newsroom has reached the half way mark in its premiere season. So far, Aaron Sorkin has managed to captivate viewers with his accurate depiction of the day-to-day activities inside a corporate newsroom, and the show has received an overwhelming amount of support from fans. However, there’s a very good reason why I’ve waited until now to write my first review. Before the series premiere, a number of very reputable television critics received screeners of the first four episodes; and most of them weren’t at all impressed with...

Iwan Rhoen Joins Game of Thrones

We are a little late to the party with this news, but now is better than never. Last Friday, the Game of Thrones fan-site WinterIsComing.net discovered through their own due diligence that Misfits actor Iwan Rhoen will join the cast for Season Three. Although the news hasn’t been confirmed by HBO, the guys over at WiC seem to be confident that Rhoen will play the role of Ramsay Snow. Their article includes a link to a recent Facebook photo, which shows him at a pub in Belfast playing pool with other cast members; and further research by WiC revealed that the CV on Rhoen’s...

True Blood 507: “In the Beginning”

Hello again my children! Sorry I was away last week, but I’m back this week full of piss and vinegar over the goings on in Bon Temps. So let’s get to it, shall we? Dealing with the aftermath of Roman’s untimely (but welcome) demise at the hands of Russell has turned out to be quite the interesting turn of events. As soon as Roman was killed, things kicked in to high gear! Can you imagine how much more interesting the past few eps would have been if Roman had met the True Death earlier? That whole Authority/Sanguinista storyline would have had way more juice to get going and...

Larry David Stars in Jerry Seinfeld’s New Web-Series

Larry David Stars in Jerry Seinfeld’s New Web-Series

What’s Larry David up to these days? Well, he appears to have some time on his hands to go play around with his longtime friend Jerry Seinfeld. With no sign of a new season of Curb on the horizon, Larry teamed up with the Seinfeld co-creator to appear in his new web-series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The premise of the show is simple. Each week, Seiny drives a different classic car to pick up a comedian; then they go have a cup of coffee. The first episode titled “Larry Eats a Pancake” which premiered last week, features Larry David being picked up in a 1952 VW Bug. The jokes...
